Commemorating the Liberation of Denmark

Tuesday, May 5

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the commemoration to mark the 70 anniversary of Denmark's liberation after World War II. Earlier today, Crown Prince Frederik participated in a wreath laying in Nyhavn, Copenhagen.

A little history:
On 9 April 1940 the Germans took over Denmark during World War II. The night between 4th and 5th May 1945 the Germans surrendered and after five years, Denmark were once again governed by Danes. On the 4th of May it's a tradition to light candles in the windows to mark the liberation. This year the liberations have 70 years of anniversary. 1

Dressed in black from head to toe with a little twist of a black and white Elise Gug floral dress. In my opinion dress did not make her over-dressed at all which is important on a day like this.

Both Frederik and Mary were moved at the commemoration and did not hide it a lot. Think about it, after 70 years people still get affected and moved, it's notable. We have to remember that our past makes our future. Somehow we all have relatives or living family member who have fought for something as the World War II. Some paid with their life...

... Let's keep a moment in silence

  1. Hi Henriette

    Are the earrings new? I don't think I have seen these big pearl ones before. Thanks.

    1. Dear Sarah,
      you're not the first to ask me about the earrings, it's likely that they are new. I have no identification... Let us keep up the search and we might be able to find more info :)
